Heather Zell expects to have quite the weekend.
The co-owner of Chatterbox Communications, a public relations firm in Derry Township, will appear on “The $100,000 Pyramid” game show this Sunday on ABC. She also is launching a new blog offering advice on dating and other subjects to divorced women over 40.
Zell said filming the game show was an “incredible experience.” She will take part in the second game on the 9 p.m. episode, playing with actors Bridget Moynahan and Rex Lee.
“When you watch the game shows at home, it’s so much fun to play along and scream answers at the TV,” she said. “It’s really different to actually be sitting in that seat.”
The classic game show, which was revived this year with Michael Strahan as host, has been airing episodes all summer. This will be one of the last to air this season.
A public watch party will be held from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday at The Vineyard and Brewery at Hershey in Londonderry Township.
Zell couldn’t talk specifics, including how much money she won. But she was able to talk about her time in New York City, plus share some details about her upcoming blog, “40DD.” The latter stands for divorced and dating.
Zell said the blog is designed to help divorced women understand that life isn’t over when a marriage ends. She was married for eight years and got back into the dating world within the last 18 months.
“Everything is completely different than it used to be,” she said, citing an endless amount of dating apps that make you feel like you’re dating your phone. “But you can make this adventure anything that you want it to be.”
In her blog posts, which will be featured at www.40dd.org, Zell said she will be writing about her journey of starting over at 40 and how she balances her career and dating.
Zell said she has plenty of stories to share — some funny, some sad — but she wants other women to share their stories with her. She has started a new email account, email@example.com, for those looking to offer perspectives.
Sharing a journey can make everyone stronger, she said. “My ultimate goal is to help other people with the blog. If something great comes out of that business wise, I’m certainly open to that.”
Zell launched her PR business in 2014 with a partner, Kathy Geller Myers.
Chatterbox specializes in public and media relations, event planning and outreach campaigns. The partners started the business after working in various public relations capacities for corporate and nonprofit clients, including health care systems.
They leveraged those relationships and have been working with clients such as Select Medical Holdings Corp. and The Dickinson School of Law in Carlisle.
